The first-ever meeting of a national coalition of lesbian and gay leaders took place in Kansas City in 1966.

What preceded such activism? How has the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community evolved? Answers are found in the Gay and Lesbian Archive of Mid-America, which is discussed by a panel of local experts: Stuart Hinds, Miller Nichols Library; David Jackson, Jackson County Historical Society; and Christopher Leitch, Kansas City Museum.

This presentation is part of the Missouri Valley Speakers Series.
